Rising Star: Raffey Cassidy
- raffeycassidy.com -

I’m absolutely THRILLED to share images from the Miu Miu Fall/Winter 2018 advertising campaign featuring Raffey with you today! As always, Raffey looks gorgeous and each of the looks she was styled in suits her very well. I have uploaded three images from the campaign to our gallery, let’s hope we get to see more very soon!


The CONVERSATION is a series of pictures made for the arresting Autumn/Winter Miu Miu collection, shot by Alasdair McLellan.

In The CONVERSATION the Miu Miu gang is at home in suburbia, reclining against velvet drapes, sat inert on mommy’s favourite coaches. The stills present a fertile setting for these women’s imaginations, all the better to carry off their conspicuous wardrobe. If you can imagine them reading a racy paperback and listening to garage rock, all the better.

The gang is all present and correct: sisters Adwoa and Kesewa Aboah, Georgia May Jagger, Ariel Nicholson, Zoe Thaets. Because these girls are more than just models, they are joined by Hollywood’s renegade spirit, Elle Fanning and its emerging starlets, Rowan Blanchard and Raffey Cassidy.

The CONVERSATION seems to ask the question, is the 2018 Miu Miu woman being beamed in from the birth of the teenager or are they tomorrow’s people? Whichever, this girl gang means business. They are dressed in their finest, for a night on the tiles. The sense of anticipation is only heightened by their luxuriously upholstered sitting rooms. We are in an antechamber at the moment before disruption. What better way to disrupt than by style alone?

In Steel Magnolias, Dolly Parton makes the grooming observation ‘the higher the hair, the closer to God’. But what if she was wrong? There is something devilish about the exploration of the contemporary beehive. What if bad girls want to wear high hair too?

These women are ready for action. Their power is tangible, their dress immaculate. They are the leaders of the pack.

A couple of days ago, Raffey flew out to Paris, France to attend the Miu Miu Cruise Collection 2019 fashion show! She was originally invited to simply sit back and enjoy the show, but at the last minute Miuccia Prada decided to have some of the actresses who were invited walk the runway, including Raffey, Gwendoline Christie, Uma Thurman and Chloé Sevigny! Raffey of course agreed right away and looked absolutely stunning while modeling on a runway for the very first time. I have uploaded images from the show to our gallery for you to view, you definitely don’t want to miss these!

Luckily, Miu Miu has uploaded a video from the show to their Youtube channel, so if you’re interested in actually seeing Raffey walk the runway at the Hotel Regina in Paris instead of just the images, you can watch it below! She appears around the 1:35 minute mark:

After the show everyone came together to celebrate! Raffey of course also attended the after party, where she hung out with fellow young actresses Sadie Sink and Rowan Blanchard, who also got to walk during the show. The girls look like they had a fun night and enjoyed their time in Paris! Check out the images in our gallery.

Earlier today, Raffey’s Vogue Darling feature was posted online! We now have the image of Raffey shot for British Vogue by Leon Mark in a higher quality, which I have uploaded to our gallery. I have also uploaded Raffey’s selfie with the cute filter which was featured in the article as well. You can also read an excerpt of the article below!

In the June issue of British Vogue, 15-year-old Raffey Cassidy is the latest rising star to step into the role of Vogue Darling.

Raffey Cassidy is 15 years old but her screen credits already read like those of an actress more than twice her age. Later this year she’ll star in Brady Corbet’s Vox Lux alongside Natalie Portman and Jude Law, while previous co-stars include Nicole Kidman (The Killing of a Sacred Deer), George Clooney (Tomorrowland), Brad Pitt (Allied) and Charlize Theron (Snow White and the Huntsman). Until now her age has meant mainly “child of” roles, but as she enters her late teens, Manchester-born Cassidy is excited by the new shift in Hollywood. “There are a lot of interesting and cool parts at the moment, especially about the teenage experience. It’s a good time to be an actress.” What label would Britain’s next screen sensation choose to collect her Oscar in? “Chloé, Louis Vuitton, Chanel… or Topshop.”

“Stacy Martin gave me one book, Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams by Sylvia Plath, at the start of filming Vox Lux and another, Just Kids by Patti Smith, at the end. The Plath one is now my favourite.”

“I absolutely love hoodies, especially skate ones. I used to skateboard to school but I don’t any more because it’s all uphill.” […]

Raffey once again stood in front of the camera to shoot an editorial for the March issue of V Magazine! I have added two stunning images from the shoot to our gallery, in which she got to wear another fantastic outfit designed by Louis Vuitton. The magazine issue is available on newsstands now and you can also order your copy online here. Luckily for us, they have also published the article online. You can read an excerpt of it below.

Like most 16-year-olds, Raffey Cassidy has just returned home from school, and is starting on her homework. Unlike most 16-year-olds, today that includes an interview—this very one—to promote her latest project: psychological horror film The Killing of a Sacred Deer, co-starring Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, and Alicia Silverstone, and directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, known for 2015’s The Lobster. “I have a really normal life, to be honest,” the actress swears over the phone from her family home in Manchester. Of course, “normal” is relative and, for Cassidy, shuffling between sets and school halls is exactly that.

As the youngest of five children, Cassidy grew up watching her siblings, 24-year-old Grace and 22-year-old Finney, navigate acting from an early age. “Grace was first and then when Finney started I remember seeing how much fun they had with acting,” remembers Cassidy, whose acting chops were first discovered when she accompanied her brother to one of his auditions. That eventually led to roles in 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman and 2015’s Tomorrowland, which she refers to as “the first big thing I’ve ever done.” It was beneficial that, throughout the process, she could take cues from veteran George Clooney. “Through observing him, it was helpful to see the way he not only acts but the way he behaves on set,” she recalls. “The way he treats everyone with respect was something that will stay with me forever.” […]

I have finally gotten around to upload screencaptures from the film “The Killing of a Sacred Deer“! Raffey plays 14-year-old Kim, the on-screen daughter of Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell. I don’t want to give too much away, but if you like psychological thrillers and have not seen it yet I strongly suggest that you should watch it. Luckily, the film is available for download on both Amazon and iTunes. Raffey’s performance was simply phenomenal and very different from her other projects, so it was refreshing to see her in a ‘new’ genre! I have added 150+ high quality screencaptures for you to view to our gallery.
